Family, football and lots of home-cooked food are all things that come to mind when we think of Thanksgiving. But other than leftover turkey sandwiches, what is it that we’re really grateful for?
We spend most of our time creating the best website builder possible, but we’re taking a moment to look at the bigger picture. Here’s what has us giving thanks this season:
If you love the people you work with, the old 9 to 5 just seems to fly by. We’re over 1,000 strong and growing every day, but every single Wix team member brings something unique to the table. Also part of our family? Our dogs. They’re not the most productive members of the Wix team, but we let it slide.
Ever been told to think outside the box, only to be shut down once you do? It’s the pits. That’s why we’re oh so thankful that when we come up with a crazy new idea, we’re encouraged to see it through. Every creative person out there can relate to this one.
Confession: we’re major snackers. Luckily, the supply at the office is (almost) always overflowing with goodies that keep us going when that creative project we’re working on goes into overtime.
In case it isn’t obvious, we’re kind of obsessed with the web. An ever expanding world of innovation, we like to think that the millions of websites that have been created using the Wix website builder has made the net a better place :)
In today’s crazy-paced business world, having the time to give back often seems pretty non-existent. But if you are like us and make it a priority from time to time, you probably also know how rewarding it is. Whether it’s in our local communities or on a global scale, we never regret the time we make to give back (even if we have to put in some work hours on the weekend).
Work hard, play hard! If you also burn a lot of midnight oil, you can appreciate a good decompression session. That’s why we make it a priority to de-stress with a big party every few months. Every party has a crazier theme than the next, and there’s always a surprise performer! Pro tip: make sure it’s on a Friday night. No one should have to look a coworker in the eye the next morning.
We can barely imagine what life would be like without this bottomless source of weird fun and goodness. If something fun or interesting is trending, it spreads around the office like wildfire – inspiring new ideas or simply a few good laughs.
If this was 30 years ago, not only would we not have any internet (eek!) – we’d all have to come to work in our business attire and leave our personality at home. Well, it’s 2016 and we’re just going to say it: just because we wear flip flops to the office doesn’t mean we don’t get stuff done! Coming into work in whatever feels comfortable lets us do our best work.
Our walls are lined with quotes, art and other trinkets that make our office feel like a home away from home. Ever try to do your best work within the confines of what feels like a jail cell? It’s not inspiring. Having a comfy and inviting workspace is a luxury we don’t overlook.
Who would we be without our users?! Our products live and breath because of our amazingly inspiring 90 million users that span this fine globe. Wix users motivate us to keep expanding the horizons of our product and help us to accomplish things we might not have even thought possible. So thank you, guys.
